A Political Campaign: Ecstasy and Agony is a revealing memoir of the soaring highs and crushing lows of a political campaign.  The no-holds-barred story of what life is really like on the campaign trail is insightful and serious—and often humorous—but not partisan.  This is the straight scoop on what a candidate really experiences and thinks on those long days.


 People want honesty in a politician.  You will find honest answers here to great and small questions about American politics.   Why do political parties nominate candidates near the ends of the political spectrum?  What’s a stall warning on a small plane sound like?  What do U.S. Senators and aspiring candidates talk about in unguarded moments?  Want a few how-do-do-it tips on campaigning?  What’s the important word in “I want to win the right way?”  And scores more—

A Political Campaign: Ecstasy and Agony is also available both in print and ebook at major booksellers, including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

 A Political Campaign: Ecstasy and Agony was originally published in 2008 under the title Few Are Chosen: A Campaign Memoir.  The author thoroughly revised the book and added new ideas for the re-publication in 2019.
